I have just moved back to Sweden from UK and I asked before I came , how much money I was allowed to take with me and it was not more then 10 000 Euros in cash throw the Airport .

Now when I am trying to put it in my bank account they are saying that I am not allowed until I have prof of where they came from , I dont have it some of them was in my bank account in UK but most of them I loaned out to a friend and I sold my car with other stuff before I moved back .

So what can I do to prof where they came from ? What do I have to do to not be treated like a criminal just because I want to put my money in my bank account where the bank should be thankful that I am putting them in their bank .

The banks would gladly take your money but they have to follow European money laundering laws: http://europa.eu/legislation_summaries/jus.../l24016a_en.htm So for large amounts of money, especially cash, they are required to ask for proof of origin.

Now, if you had done a transfer directly between your UK account and your Swedish account everything would have been fine since the Swedish bank can assume that the UK bank knows about its customers. But for cash they are very strict since large cash amounts are common among criminals. In Sweden they have to ask if you bring more than 10,000 SEK in cash. This low amount was implemented due to the common occurrence of bank/armoured car robberies in the late 90s/early 00s.

Don't understand why you drew out so much cash instead of doing a transfer from UK Bank To Swedish Bank.
You say you have no proof where the cash came from but you do.
1 if you drew cash out of a UK bank you must have a statement showing an amount withdrawn and a nil balance.
2 you say you sold your car so you must have some paperwork concerning that transaction.
3 when you loaned someone money did you not have an agreement with the borrower which would be proof you made a loan and got the money back.
No one is treating you like a criminal,we all have to have proof when depositing large amounts into a bank account.
A couple of years ago I sold my house and had not found a new property, stayed with friends while I looked.
The Solicitor who dealt with my sale deposited the proceeds in my Bank acount and despite the Solicitors and Bank being opposite one another in a very small town and deal with one another all the time, I still had a call from the bank concerning the deposit because it was so large, for a short time I was quite wealthy rolleyes.gif
Because of money laundering Banks have to be so careful now.
